William James Maxwell was an architectural sculptor who migrated from Scotland to Australia in 1875. He built a mock castle and established a family vineyard just outside Adelaide, which he named Woodlands Park. His son planted vines in nearby McLaren Vale and his grandson served a term as winemaker for Hardy Wines at the historic Tintara wineworks. William Maxwell's progeny remain in McLaren Vale, producing the southern hemisphere's most successful brands of Honey Mead, as well as vintages of the most extraordinary value in McLaren Vale Shiraz. But what does Maxwell taste like? Gentleman James Halliday describes Maxwell as robust, picking the eyes out of McLaren Vale shiraz; licorice, dark chocolate, savoury firm, ripe tannins, blackberry, positive oak the icing on the cake. Terrific value. Oh yes, he suggests that it should be enjoyed by.. Made of mature vine mclaren vale »

Woop Woop Black Chook Sparkling Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz McLaren Langhorne South Australia
From good vineyards in the McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek, an assemblage of Shiraz wines that have been vinified and aged separately, isolated on the basis of character and complexity, then woven into a tapestry of remarkable integration. Tiraged and treated to a secondary fermentation in bottle, Black Chook has developed a rich chocolate and cherry ripe palate with light biscuitty oak and gummy, chewy tannins. A luscious Sparkling Shiraz, sagaciously balanced, destined to compliment pork, turkey, and every festive engagement.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
The Galvanized Wine Group's collective approach to strategic viticulture, stratification of style and triangulated approach to vinification, includes the highly successful Woop Woop (out there from out there) and its sibling Black Chook label, all are wines of charm and character. The multi vintage Black Chook sparkles to the tune of an effusive, opulent persona, predominantly three to five year old Shiraz wines, aged in a combination of seasoned French oak barrels, where they develop layers of smooth integrated fruit and a rich weighty texture across the palate. These are assembled with a touch of younger Shiraz wines contributing ripe juicy fruit characters. Alcohol 13.0%
Bright red/ brick colour with light purple foam and a fine, persistent bead. Aromas of floral and light oak, mulberry and violet, dates and sweet coffee. A big palate of red and black fruits, lively spice, charcouterie and leather.
